Greyfuss, you remind me of the man who prayed every week to win the lottery. After a couple years of this, God finally told him that it might help if he actually bought a lottery ticket. Very Happy

I'm using Excel (to no avail Laughing ), but could you please write 'without Excel' after my score. Perhaps then it would look less embarrassing. Laughing Wink

You should reread the rules and this thread, Zobraks. First and second place will automatically win prizes, but Gelert will be having drawings for the other 3 games. I'm not even in the running but just playing for fun.

I've read the rules, and it's clear that only the first two contestants win for sure (the others have to pray to Lady Luck). So what I meant was: "With these familiar names What a Face from many quizes and forums in the game hardly anyone else stands a chance to be the first or second in the competition Sad."

Okay .................. from now on familiar names are banned ............................ ONLY KIDDING! lol!

Otherwise the only names we'd see would be UNfamiliar ones like scratch ............... Wrigglebottom, Snifflepants, Tremblebosom and Fnurfleplop!

Although, on second thoughts, I'm sure I went out with a Tremblebosom once! Or was that one real ale too many again?

Hmm! .................. She could certainly drink, bless her!

I think Zobraks point is that there are some definite "ringers" that have entered the contest...but that's to their credit. They obviously have played a lot of adventure games and are well versed in their screenshots. While others of us have lesser experience and overall game knowledge. Quite honestly I am humbled by many of the participants in this game and particularly the top four.

I was absolutely elated to recognize the few that I did! I initially wasn't even going to try because I literally felt "clueless" when I viewed the screenshots. Although the Excel file "grade" in each of the quizzes isn't the most encouraging, I made an effort...and will be anxious to see the final answers as there are still one or two that seem familiar but.... scratch

Quite frankly...in watching the "leader board" I was pulling for the folks that have frequented these forums and that I've come to know in sharing screenshot, movie pics, movie quotes, comments about games and TV shows, and life etc. They have made this forum an interesting and fun place to visit. So my heart is with them. Very Happy

Hi JK! This is PRECISELY why I decided beforehand on the drawing system. As there are 5 prizes, this system fits perfectly for this purpose.

For contests where I have only one prize, though, I'm stumped as to how to give all levels of knowledge of screenshots a chance. I'll think on it though. study

By the way, though, in spite of this, the drawing will be done completely fairly with no advantage given either way. You'll just have to trust me on that. So, no rows and fisticuffs, okay?? lol!

I have my GIANT TOMBOLA at the ready! lol!

On the other hand, some of you may be fighting to give YOUR prize away!

Scores update - 4th June - ONE DAY TO GO!.

Let me know immediately if you think your score doesn't tally with the total you've already submitted to me.

The scores so far (you still have until midnight June 5th UK time to submit your answers to both Part A and Part B):

Gonchi .................................................. 39pts
SuperEdy .............................................. 38pts
HandsFree ........................................... 36pts
Lady Kestrel (without Excel) .............. 36pts
Zobraks ................................................ 29pts
hatshepsut ........................................... 27pts
Taio ....................................................... 24pts
Andromus ............................................. 23pts
TechnoSpike ......................................... 16pts
JKeerie .................................................. 13pts
lakerz ......................................................5pts
Camaro .................................................. 2pts

As it stands, Gonchi and SuperEdy would be guaranteed prizes if they stay 1st and 2nd. The remainder of the contestants would go into a draw for the remaining three prizes.

Please ................ keep plugging away! It could be crucial!!! lol!

Yep, hate to break it to you Gonchi, but you well known in these parts for knowing your adventure games. Smile SuperEdy as well of course. HandsFree is a new name to me, but I'm sure has a rep as well haha.

Lady Kestrel .... wow, very nice job of scoring that high in points without even being to use Excel.

Really, I think anything over 20 points is spot on! Looking at my paltry 5 points is just sad. I obviously need to start playing a lot more adventure games. My big problem is, even the games I play, I can't identify the darned screenshots a year later. lol!

Zobraks ................................................ 32pts

Lady Ketrel has kindly given up her place in the drawing as she can only play Mac games at this time. That means that everyone has a chance of winning won of the FIVE prizes in the drawing.

As I said in setting down the guidelines for this contest, the prize receivers will be decided upon as follows:

The persons finishing first and second will each automatically receive their prize.

So . . . . CONGRATULATIONS to Gonchi and SuperEdy

The two persons finishing third and fourth will enter a drawing for a prize (so a 50:50 chance of winning)

Those two persons (whilst acknowledging Lady kestrel's withdrawal), are HandsFree and Zobraks.

Well done to both ............... and good luck!

The three persons finishing fifth, sixth and seventh will enter a drawing for a prize (so a 1 in 3 chance of winning)

Those three persons are hatshepshut , Taio and Andromus.

Well done to all three ............... and good luck!

The three persons finishing eighth, ninth and tenth and eleventh will enter a drawing for a prize (so a 1 in 4 chance of winning)

Those four persons are Technospike , JKeerie , lakerz and Camaro.

Well done to all four ............... and good luck!

Finally, thankyou to everyone for taking part and competing in a friendly competitive way. I give no apologies for tough screenshots and 'mince pie' pics, and hope that I can repeat the inflicting of another agonising ordeal upon your good selves again at a later date . . . . yet to be decided. Twisted Evil


I plan on making the drawing tomorrow when I've caught up on some sleep - It's gone 2 a.m. here!

I'll then let you know the nature of the IDENTICAL PRIZES that FIVE of you will be eligible to receive.

What I will tell you now is that the game is an Adventure game that you will be able to download for free thanks to the kind donation of FIVE downloads of the game by the developers concerned (after, of course, some highly skilled negotiations carried out by yours truly, Mr Gelert Wink ). The game normally retails at around FIFTEEN English £'s Sterling.

I know you said part B would (potentially) be easier than part A, but I found B to very a lot more challenging.

As for part A, I played 9: The Lost Resort years ago and absolutely don't remember those green stairs, LOL.

I knew I've seen picture 8 used before in a contest but just plain forgot to which game it was from.

I could kick myself over not guessing Amber for pic 11. <kicks himself now>

Some of these games I've just never played so can't feel too bad about not guessing them I guess.

Part B was evil. Twisted Evil I thought I was good with box shots, but I was sadly sadly mistaken...

Good contest Gelert! You put a lot of time into it, and I did find it quite challenging.

I want to thank our wonderful host Gelert for organising this contest, the Malathedra team and all the people who took part in the MMMAC. king
Special thanks to Lady K: without her withdrawal I would have much less chance to win. Embarassed
Too bad all of us couldn't get the prize, but that's life. Wink

I also want to thank my mom and my pa, my coach, the ball boys and girls,... Laughing

I can't believe I forgot Emerald City Confidential, I tried almost any high-resolution fantasy cartoon adventure (they're so few after all); instead I didn't even know Jackyll & Hyde (2010), I never watch screenshots of unreleased games, so I'm not disappointed if they are canceled Smile
Thank you for all, Gelert cheers
